Otherwise, you can choose whichever debt that you attack first then proceed to the next as quickly as possible.

Withdrawing from Debt Counseling
!!!!It is very important that you think very carefully about going under debt counseling because once you have been declared over indebted and accepted into the process it will be very difficult to withdraw from the process and even more difficult to remove the Debt Counseling flag from your credit bureau record. Below is an extract from the Guideline:

A debt counselor does not have statutory powers to terminate or withdraw the debt review process. This means that a debt counselor can no longer issue Form 17.4 and update DHS with status G (Voluntary withdrawal by consumer) or H (Withdrawal by a debt counselor). There is However varied ways in which a consumer can be withdrawn from debt review which will be set out below.

Once a debt review court order has been obtained a consumer cannot terminate or withdraw the debt review process, they can however approach the court to rescind the order or apply for an order which declares that the consumer is no longer over-indebted. Upon receipt of the order, a debt counselor will notify the credit providers of the withdrawal by means of Form 17.W and update DHS with status G.

Consumers can only withdraw or terminate the debt review process prior to declaration of over indebtedness as per section 86(7) of the Act and issuance of Form 17.2 subject to payment of debt counseling fees as per NCR Debt Counseling Fee Guidelines. If a determination is made and no court order is in place, the consumer will remain under debt review. A debt counselor will notify the credit providers of the withdrawal by means of Form 17.W and update DHS with status G.

A consumer under debt review may be transferred to another debt counselor subject to payment of all debt counseling fees where it has been established that the previous debt counselor followed the correct process. • Form 17.7 should be used to facilitate this process.

Until debt do us part. The rate rate of people choosing to get married, in western countries, is shrinking while the divorce rate is increasing. Also, people that choose to get married are waiting longer. Men within the MGTOW movement (men going their own way) seem to indicate that the divorce laws, including child custody and asset placement, strongly favor females. Weddings, as well as divorces, can be financially straining for those couples who seek to go the traditional marriage route. Also, more and more woman are choosing to stay single and focus on their career first as well as the woman that do get married are waiting until they are over 35 years old, on average.

While our inflationary, debt-based economy (roughly 1.5 trillion student loan debt in the United States alone) is a big factor, there is a large movement of people that are breaking the traditional mold and choosing to go their own way for reasons other than financial concerns. People are waking-up to the fact that happiness doesn’t always come with a shiny ring and a promise to hang around with each other until the end of their lives.

Also, I cannot offer specific investment advice due to the complicated and detailed nature of everyone’s personal, unique financial and life situations. Although I usually include sources, charts, data, and links to the subject matter in my videos, the views expressed in my videos are often “one man’s opinion” and should not be taken as financial advice, in any way. I urge you to seek professional counsel and for everyone to do their own due diligence prior to making any significant decisions regarding financial and investment matters.
